I’ve got a thing for handbags, all shapes and sizes
It’s a bother changing, but the occasion always arises
Whether pink, black, white, or brown,
Alongside others, I never wear a frown,
Bags for every season, which allows me different disguises!

Might be the dirty man in the gutter,
Or your mate, so loaded he can only stutter.
She might be the loudmouth at the bar,
Or the woman who almost died,wrecking her car.

Sadly, could be your father or mother.

To help out your fellow man
When noticing someone in great distress
Reach out with a helping hand

All things are possible when you believe
I accept (something) as true;
Just as I feel sure;
Of the truth of belief;

Just because you physically don't see the matter;
Doesn't mean it's after-matter;
You can't see the air but it's here;

And you believe the sun...Read More

Bad Sad choices in Love
Slim Fast

Is produced by the calories our mouth intakes
And if it is more cakes and bakes
Than salad and fiber breakfast flakes
The noise the scale's are bound to make
Are of...Read More

Well, of course he's misanthropic
He’s a Misanthropic Man
The Devil’s in the details
Buried deep under the covers
Of bedtime stories, slithers ‘neath loose sand

Sweets for a sweet pretty thing
Brings her closer, his...Read More

Entropy peon gnaw real chaotic poet
theorizes, surmises, realizes, outlandish notions 
   manifesting jibberish inside frangible egghead,
especially when attempting tip ply words struggling 
   to describe abstract whims fed
by fancy,  groovy, heady indefinable 
   mind boggling ideas they weigh...Read More

The Dance
Eclectic and faint a lonely sunrise
As a backdrop horizon surmises a smile,
Arrayed in kaleidoscoped clouds softly hued.

A glorious triad fulfilled quest, flares
Its entourage of dichotomy suspended
To earth’s finite...blinded in love and mission.

Dance of the autumn leaves, bow to
Rhapsody fusioned in...Read More

This love’s diary now lost, written in the inks of sin
Since you left me, there’s no way back 
My nerves of steel have begun to crack

During the Holiday Season, the spirit is felt by all.
We sing our Christmas carols for the spirit to flow.
Yet, the New Year is upon us with many issues in toil.
We set aside these worries to inform the soul.

The romantic poets were too early to postulate total atheism,
And so freshened up the church by aligning god with nature,
And I believe they had a preference for nature over god or theism, 
Because they never posit him as social...Read More

Cause and Effect
As we untangle cause and effect,
Like parts of some equation,
Investigating all that erect,
Your feminine persuasion...
Blowing softly in your ear,
To watch each hair that stands,
That runs your back to disappear,
As if by my command....
Then around your waist and hips,
Till locked within...Read More

To: Enchanted souls
Watch me fly
Flutter by
Wings wide open
Days go by
 You lie there dreaming
Sun rises
No surprises
Life goes as one surmises
Here we go again
Second chances
Left footed prances
Everyone dances
Music of the soul
Sweet elation
Life’s celebration
Nature’s creation
Another flower grows
Raindrop falling
Natures calling
Oceans sprawling
And the tide rushes in

And upon its frantic search I embarked;
The more I discovered the more the mystery it held, 
And the more I guessed, the more it bore out all my surmises,
Until a victim...Read More

A daydream fanaticizes many things. 
Romance sings, rises.
But, real life surmises.

Who is to know?

What is real?

Are you it?

Do you know?

Do you care?

Does it matter?

Will it infect?





Disguises, disguises, and surmises are no surprises

For the wisest.
